What size are holes (thread size) to mount the motor??? Do most teams support the shaft ?

Didn't your motor come with screws? Use those. I think they are either M3 or #4.

I can't speak for all teams, but we did not support the shaft, simply because it was too short to do so. Of course the only bot that used the Monster Motor did snap the shaft off eventually. . . . but I think that was from a loose set screw that ate away at the shaft.

dont use the front mounting screws they seem to strip and shear pretty easlier, make a mount that surrounds the motor and acts as a clamp look in riobotz pg 84

I was planning on face mounting it with a clamp on the back and a shaft support like I have always done in the past with feiago...
Anyone done it this way with a monster?
Maybe the double clamp would be quicker and easier...
